A Socialist Manifesto
by Eric v.d. Luft

"a plan for the post-Bush world"
"Foreign military adventurism should become as
repugnant in the general public opinion as the
analogous idea of forcing our way into our neighbor’s
home in an otherwise peaceful residential area and
dictating how that neighbor ought to live."

Amazon Kindle e-book: A Socialist Manifesto, by Eric v.d. Luft
"Luft’s conception of socialism is far distant from
the socialism of the
gulag and the secret police; it
is a socialism that free people of good will could
actually live with and flourish under, and it would
certainly be a kinder, more just, and more
inspiring social order than we have presently.
This original and thoughtful, albeit problematic,
contribution to the discussion of socialism is well
worth the attention of serious readers.
Recommended for high school, public, and
academic libraries."
